    Abstract

    The notion of privacy and surveillance and what is deemed right and wrong, whether that is an ethical concern or a concern for the regimented governments, will be a popular theme throughout this essay. The purpose of this essay is to critically analyse these different methods and how they are produced on a mass-scale. Research indicates this would be the most appropriate method of discussion as it allows for debates and arguments to be drawn from the text, which is purely to act as a bystander to the events and case studies that will be highlighted throughout this thesis. It is in my hope that this emphasises the difficulty of having a right or wrong answer on a topic as surprisingly subjective as this, and it is with great hope that the reader of this essay will endeavour to be educated and attentive to the following sources in order to make a coherent and feasible argument which can be presented to an external audience.
